Default South Australian- Kite surf archive

Hello folks

This challenge is a real 'challenge' to me - not only in a photographic sense, but also because I've made SO many 'ad hoc' sports photos... which one do I choose to share.

Perhaps one of the most striking is where I began photographing some kite surfers some years ago, and they asked for me to email photos I had of them and then to take photos of their state final championships a few weeks later.

Here are a few shots from my archives (limiting to 2 to be a good boy!) I find it an interesting sport (but not one I'll take up personally).

Lighting can be very tricky from many aspects (e.g. sudden spray much whiter, sun direction, etc.

Particularly as Adelaide beaches face due west, so I am often shooting towards the afternoon / setting sun. Thankfully a polariser can help with the some reflections, glare, water colour, etc.
